2 Peter 1: 5-7

You must make every effort to add moral excellence to your faith; and to moral excellence, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, endurance; and to endurance, godliness; and to godliness, affection for others; and to affection for others, love.

It sometimes seems that our world is becoming meaner and more divisive.

Help us to integrate more kindness, thoughtfulness and empathy into our daily lives. Purge crudeness and crassness from our conversations, writings and interactions with others as we strive to attain godliness. SM
